  • Barack Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, to Barack Hussein Obama Sr. of Nyangoma-Kogelo, Siaya District, Kenya, and Ann Dunham of Wichita, Kansas. His parents met while both were attending the East-West Center of the University of Hawaii at Manoa, where his father was enrolled as a foreign student. In his 1995 memoir, Dreams from My Father, Obama describes a nearly race-blind early childhood. He writes: "That my father looked nothing like the people around me –- that he was black as pitch, my mother white as milk –- barely registered in my mind."
  • He could be nothing BUT American. Otherwise, he'd be ineligible for the office of U.S. President, and wouldn't be considering an '08 run.
  • American, otherwise he wouldn't be legally allowed to run for Presidency.
  • He is American. If you mean what background is he: then he is half Kenyan.
  • I heard he might have some Irish also? Can anyone confirm this?
  • Andy Martin will hold a news conference Friday, February 9th at 11:00 A.M. to announce that U. S. Senator Barack Obama is a citizen of Kenya and became a citizen of Kenya under the Independence Constitution of Kenya in 1963. Obama has never renounced his Kenyan citizenship. He is also a U. S. Citizen. A president of the USA should have his thoughts and actions committed to one country and not two.
  • He an American Black man, whom I think would make a Great President.
  • Who cares. As long as he never makes it to the White House!
  • he's mother is white and his father is black.
  • His name alone is scary, Obama(too close to Osama) and Hussein(remember Sadam?) Plus you'd think someone running for President would put his hand over his heart(like all the other candidates). There's really no one running that isn't scary though. I think we're screwed this go 'round. Ok, I'm finished.......sock it to me. :)
  • Mom is from Kansas, Dad is from Kenya-he was raised by his mom from a young age in Indonesia before coming to the US
  • He's American, or at least he's enough of an American that they let him run for president obviously...
  • he may seem like the nicest person in the world, but I have to admit his names make me feel uneasy and I dont believe he's of black decent. He is muslim. So there for he should not be an American president. I mean wth are Americans thinking. Isn't it bad enough our country don't even look American anymore with all the middle east on every corner running our 7-elevens and just about every gas station, and then some!
  • Hawiian and Egyptian?
  • I really don't care what his nationality is. He will make a verypoor president. His proposed social programs alone will caue a deeper recession than we are already into. Radical environmentalism is already running industry out of this countr and he is now proposing raising corporate taxes to give bac to the people. What will he give back to the people when all industry has left or are we going to attempt to outlaw industry from moving. If so we will have to strip the corp officers and R&D personell of their pass ports. Is this the country you want? Hillry is of the same ilk.
  • Politician. I don't what country they are from but I wish someone would stop letting them into the country! lol.
  • Obama is certainly not 100% black. Not even 50%. In color he looks to be. But by nationality, he is a mixed breed with a small portion african american. The black population would say he is the first black president if he is elected but it wont be true. I do not think he has enough american heritage to run our country. Unfortunately this generation does not care too much about our heritage and history.
  • American
  • i see now that he is biracial. but where was he raised? that is where did he spend his early years?
  • Obama was born in Hawaii which makes him American.His ancestry is African.So he is African-American.Enough said.[P.S. His mother was white born in Witchia,Kansas]
  • American.
  • He is an American.
  • HEy you should of just googled it! but incase you didn't get an answer his father is african which explains the picture of obama in his headdress....the one the other canadates are using to say he's a terrorist....and his mother is white....they don't say what she is..He lived on hawii i think...so his name and the head dress are no reason to call him a terrorist. Just so you know i'm a google freak! haha any question or disagreement google it! or come on this sight and you question has already probly been asked:)
  • He's NOT "African American"! I'm so tired of the illiterate followers of this bsing salesman. He hasn't done anything for the country nor will he follow what his commercials are saying when he is president. Get a clue America! God help us! He's been shady from the start. Please people quit listening to his books, commercials, writings, and the money that he's spending, look at HIM and what he's already done for the country. Look at the last 12 vote ballets he's put in that he's PASSED on because he wanted to look good for the public. He is half Kenyan from his fathers side, and half White American from his mothers side.
  • Seeing as you have to be American to run for President of the USA I would have thought that was self-evident.
  • IF HIS MOTHER IS WHITE AND HIS FATHER IS BLACK, THEN I SUPOSE WE HAVE THE GREATEST CANDIDATE RUNNING FOR OFFICE FOR WE HAVE THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS. LIKE MICHEAL JACKSON SAID, IT DOESN'T MATTER IF YOUR BLACK OR WHITE. IN A WORLD OF RACISM, NO ONE CAN SAY A NOTHING AT ALL ANYMORE.

  • Father was BLACK from Africa, his Mother WHITE from America
  • He has dual citizenship in U.S. and Kenya!!! WHY??????????
  • American
  • Muslim. Asalamulaikum my brother.
  • American, of course!
  • Like it's been said, American. BUT............He's a man that seems to change his ideals to win favor with the people. I personally don't trust what he says and I promise it's not because he is black. I am French,Irish,American Indian mix, been married to a black man, have 2 black/F-I-AI sons and am now married to an American Indian. Am 56 years old and the most unpredjudiced person I know. I don't like him or waht he stands for because I just don't like him and what he stands for. His race has no weight in my opinion of him. What he backs up and stands for does. One minute he is for one thing and then he changes up. Sounds like the rest of the people trying to run our country. Too bad someone for the PEOPLE and our COUNTRY wasn't still running. But then again, God is in control and anything can still happen! Hope I haven't stepped on any toes or ruffled feathers. That was not my intention. I just don't think anyones race or whatever should enter in the decision. Just their morals and where they stand on leading us.
  • No one really knowws because he has posted afake birth certificate on his website. Maybe Kenyan. Who really knows?
  • My answer is: I don't know. But here are some ideas I found (DON'T flame the messenger): IDEA #1 ======= Under the Independence Constitution of Kenya, Obama became a Kenyan citizen on December 12, 1963. He has never renounced his Kenyan citizenship. On his senate web site, Obama tap dances around his own dual nationality when discussing his father. Obama obviously knows, because his father told him, that he also held/holds Kenyan nationality. IDEA #2 ======= Barack Hussein Muhammad Obama (his full name) is not black.He has only 6% black in him - he is mostly Arab on his father’s side. His father’s birth certificate lists him as born in Africa but that his nationality is Arab. So Obama is Arab-American, not ‘black’ American. He is hiding this fact so he can get the black vote here and pass for black. =================== ·.¸`'·.¸¸.·'´/¸.·'´ <´¨` R[ÆŽVOË©]UTION ¨`> ¸.·'´/¸.·'.¸`'·.¸
  • Asian Hawaiian Caucasian African
  • You think 'American' is not a nationality?
  • He was born in Hawaii, that makes him American.
  • King of the Universe
  • what a load of crap... you idiots know exactly what the question was, but are trying to skirt the issue... from what I have seen he is lucky to be between 6 and 12% African... at the best... as far as being American... obviously being born an American is the best thing that happened to this guy marrying the Idiot wife he did so far has proved the worst for his campaign...

  • Was young Obama Indonesian citizen? Document, travel suggest 'Barry Soetero' member of world's largest Muslim country -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Indonesian school registration for "Barry Soetoro" (AP photo) JERUSALEM – Was Sen. Barack Obama a citizen of Indonesia at any point in his life? That question has been circulating on the blogosphere with increased fury the past few days, since a photograph emerged of Obama's school registration papers as a child in Indonesia – the world's most populous Muslim nation – showing the presidential candidate listed as a "Muslim" with "Indonesian" citizenship. An investigation into Indonesian citizenship law and a review of Obama's biography and travels suggest the Illinois senator at one point may have been a citizen of Indonesia. That would not necessarily disqualify Obama to run for president, but it could raise loyalty concerns. A 2007 Associated Press photograph taken by Tatan Syuflana, an Indonesian AP reporter and photographer, surfaced last week on the Daylife.com photographic website showing an image of Obama's registration card at Indonesia's Fransiskus Assisi school, a Catholic institution. In the picture, Obama is registered under the name Barry Soetoro by his stepfather, Lolo Soetoro. The school card lists Barry Soetoro as a Indonesian citizen born Aug. 4, 1961, in Honolulu, Hawaii. His religion is listed as Muslim. Jack Stokes, manager of media relations for the AP, confirmed to WND the picture is indeed an AP photo. After attending the Assisi Primary School, Obama later was enrolled at SDN Menteng 1, an Indonesian public school. Obama's campaign did not return repeated WND phone calls and e-mail queries the past week asking for a clarification regarding the school documentation listing the presidential candidate's citizenship as Indonesian. Obama spokesmen have stated the candidate is a natural-born citizen amid rumors he may have been born in his father's home country of Kenya, but the campaign has not addressed whether Obama became a citizen of Indonesia at any point. (Story continues below) Obama's American mother, Ann Dunham, separated from her first husband, Barack Obama Sr., in 1963 when the presidential candidate was two years old. Dunham and Obama Sr. are reported to have later divorced. Dunham married Lolo Soetoro, an Indonesian, and moved to Indonesia sometime between 1966 and 1967. It was not clear whether Soetoro adopted Obama, either in Hawaii or in Indonesia, but there is strong circumstantial evidence that he did as far as Indonesian law was concerned. In Indonesia, which was under tight rule in 1967, Obama clearly took on the last name of his stepfather in school registration documents. All Indonesian students were required to carry government identity cards, or Karty Tanda Pendudaks, which needed to bear the student's legal name, which should be matched in public school registration filings. Following his enrollment at the private Assisi school, Obama attended public schooling in Indonesia until he returned to Hawaii at age 10. According to Indonesian legal experts, it was difficult to enroll non-Indonesian citizens in public schooling. Obama arrived in Indonesia at about the age of five according to most accounts, although it was possible he arrived at the age of six, according to a few sources. If Lolo Soetoro adopted Obama at age five or younger, then Obama would automatically have become an Indonesian citizen according to the country's laws in the 1960's, which stipulated any child aged five or younger adopted by an Indonesian father is immediately granted Indonesian citizenship upon completion of the adoption process. Lolo Soetoro could have adopted Obama in Hawaii, although such an adoption would not have necessarily been recognized by Indonesia. Indonesian law at the time also did not recognize dual citizenship, meaning if Obama became Indonesian, then as far as that country was concerned, his U.S. citizenship was no longer recognized by Indonesia. But U.S. law would still recognize Obama as an American citizen. In a revelation that raised a few eyebrows, Obama last April disclosed he traveled as a college student to Pakistan in 1981. "I traveled to Pakistan when I was in college – I knew what Sunni and Shia was [sic] before I joined the Senate Foreign Relations Committee," Obama reportedly stated at a fundraising event. The senator had not previously discussed any trip to Pakistan, either in his books or in scores of policy talks regarding Pakistan. Prompted by Obama's statements, ABC News contacted the presidential candidate's campaign, which affirmed that in 1981 – the year Obama transferred from Occidental College to Columbia University – Obama visited his mother and sister Maya in Indonesia. Obama then went on to Pakistan with a friend from college whose family was from that country, the campaign said. Obama was in Pakistan for about three weeks, said the campaign, staying with his friend's family in Karachi and also visiting Hyderabad in Southern India. Pakistan in 1981 was under military rule. It was difficult for U.S. citizens to travel to the country without assistance. It would have been easier for someone to enter Pakistan on an Indonesian passport. If Obama indeed possessed Indonesian citizenship as a child, it is unlikely he retains such citizenship. The country's bylaws require any Indonesian citizen living abroad for more than five years to formally declare his intention to return, otherwise risk losing his citizenship status. The law does not necessarily mean Indonesian citizenship would be immediately lost. The law can be overruled by ministerial order. Obama's registration in Indonesia under the name "Barry Soetoro" also raises questions as to whether he adopted that name in the U.S. at any time. According to Illinois state filings, when Obama registered as an attorney in 1991, under the name Barack Obama, he stated he did not have any former names.
  • American - he was born in Hawaii...
  • He's American. The nationality is American. If you're talking ethnicity, an example would be that he's part Kenyan.
  • Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks: "It is wonderful to be back in Oregon," Obama said. "Over the last 15 months, we've traveled to every corner of the United States. I've now been in 57 states? I think one left to go. Alaska and Hawaii I was not allowed to go to even though I really wanted to visit, but my staff would not justify it." 57 states + 1 left to go + 2 Alaska and Hawaii = 60 states Now see: http://www.oic-un.org/about/members.htm OK, it's a long way to go for a joke... Actually, no it isn't. The dude really scares me.
  • Yes he is an American, but,His name is Arabic and 'Baraka' (from which Barack came) means 'blessed' in that language. Hussein is also Arabic and so is Obama. Barack Hussein Obama is not half black. If elected, he would be the first Arab-American President, not the first black President. Barack Hussein Obama is 50% Caucasian from his mother's side and 43.75% Arabic and 6.25% African Negro from his father's side. While Barack Hussein Obama's father was from Kenya , his father's family was mainly Arabs.. Barack Hussein Obama's father was only 12.5% African Negro and 87.5% Arab (his father's birth certificate even states he's Arab, not African Negro, Wait until this get out, I'm sure Sarah will find a funny way to raise the question. Every one Hate a strong normal woman that speaks for the silent majority.
  • Obama is less than 6% African he IS 43%Arabic!! So in reality, he is Arabic / American, and a Muslim as is his Grand Mother whom by the way, is 1 of 14 wives and admits in current interviews, that she wouldn't convert to Christanity because she would have to give the life up as a Muslim, and not be part of a 14 woman herrium. Sorry boys and girls those are the real facts. Keep one other thing in mind! Hitler was a nobody that could orginize young people by giving spectacular speaches with little content mixed with promises of greatness just oppose any non followers, either by harrasment or intimidation as he is trying to do by frivously suing any one opposed to his idealologies.
  • Barack may not be 50% Black and 50% White. Information is out there that his father's family where actually Arabs and that his father was only part black.
  • Yes Barack Obama's Father is black and his mother is White. But I don't know if anybody knows this but Obama's stepfather raised him as a muslim in Indonesia. He also spent at least four years in a so called Madrassa, or Muslim seminary, in Indonesia as well. So whether or not you decide to vote for somebody who was raised as a muslim by his stepfather and is against our country is your decision. As for the rest of the sane people in the military including me I am going with MCain. But that's everyone elses opinion on who votes for who.
  • American. However, he also has citizenship with Kenya. If that's the truth then he is not qualified to be President. My understanding is that he is 50% white, 6.something % black and 40.something% arab. So, I guess that would make him our first arab-american president if he wins the election. How about that. Forget the issues... it would be so nice to have an articulate president and get that "decider" idiot out!
  • You Know That one drop of black blood makes him an American Black Man.....Even though white blood is flowing thru his veins also
  • mulatto
  • Mr. Obama is 50% Caucasian, that from his mother. What those who want Mr. Obama to write history by becoming "America's first African-American president" ignore is that his father was ethnically Arabic, with only 1 relative ethnically African Negro - a maternal great-grandparent (Sen. Obama's great-great grandparent, thus the 6.25% ethnic contribution to the senator's ethnic composition.). That means that Mr. Obama is 50% Caucasian from his mother's side. He is 43.75% Arabic, and 6.25% African Negro from his father's side.
  • he's 50% White and our next President
  • Many people have been answering as if the question was "What is his ancestry?" His nationality is US American and so is mine.
  • American is not a nationality, unless you are a native American. You people crack me up. And factually Obama is 50% white only 6% african and the rest is Arabic. Look it up.
  • He was born in the United States, so an American.
  • Nobody knows, because B-HO won't fork over his original Certificate of Live Birth.
  • I believe everyone is getting a little bit sidetracked.....We shouldn't be so concerned about his ethnicity, white, black or whatever, we're all American, what we should be concerned about is the ideology. Socialism,communism...SPREADING THE WEALTH AROUND....We need to change those things that are broken, without jeopardizing the fundamentals that have made this country great. We need to vote for someone that will continue those traditions, We need Hope that we may someday achieve the American Dream. Socialism will not allow individualism and self achievement, we will have instead mediocrity and the equal distribution of MISERY.
  • American...period, race doesn't factor in the equation.
  • I may not be, but my Half-bro is 1/2 Black American + 1/2 White American = ALL AMERICAN !!!
  • if his mother is from kansas and father from africa kenya and he was born in hawaii (which makes him american) why do they say he is arabian,muslim, etc,..?
  • Don't believe everything you read + hear- keep searching for the truth. Have you seen Barack's Birth Certificate? Check it out. It is a new certificate (created in June of '07). I was born in 1961 and my crumpled-up old TYPE WRITTEN certificate looks nothing like Barack's - which is produced from a computer. I've read that his 18 year old mother delivered him in Canada, then the grandparents brought him to Hawaii... KEEP LOOKING FOR THE TRUTH, don't let the media + democrats/government fool you.
  • He was born in Hawaii, his mother was white, born in the United States and his father was black born in Africa, except for his white grandparents in the States, his whole family is still in Africa, which makes him a true African American. The problem is that back Americans have been erroneously calling themselves African Americans, when in reality they should have been thinking of themselves black Americans. I'm Cuban, and I can tell you that the blacks in Cuba, Venezuela, Dominican Republic, etc...don't call themselves African Cubans, African Venezuelans, etc. They just call themselves Cuban, Venezuelans, etc. (they have nothing in common with Africa except the fact that their ancestors may have been brought from Africa as slaves) Example: my grandfather was born in Spain, and my Godmother is black Cuban, I don't call myself Spanish Cuban (I don't have anything in common with Spain, except that I speak Spanish) or my Godmother African Cuban (she's just Cuban, and except that she's black, Africa is just a continent to her). We're just Cubans with diverse ethnic backgrounds. The black American community needs to start looking at themselves as just Americans without segregating themselves into a different type of citizenship. If this was the case, skin color would probably be the only thing they would share with Barack Obama. The truth is that the little that we know about the young senator shows that he was born in Hawaii, grew up in Indonesia, then he was raised in Hawaii by his white grandparents. There was a controversial period of time of rebellion in his young adult years, that's when he lived in Chicago, experimented with drugs, and met Bill Ayers and other Marxist, Anarchists and controversial figures, including very racist individuals like Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, father Pfleger, and others that helped shape Barack Obama's life. He also had the privilege of attending a very prestigious university. In conclusion, his background does not reflect the struggles of the black American community. Barack Obama's ideals do not represent black America. This is how I look at Barack Obama. Nationality………. ……….. North American Age………………………….47 years old Ethnic background… ………Black African/ White American Political Party Affiliation…...Democrat Ideology……………………..Marxist Socialist Being said that, I personally do not believe he’s qualified to be first commander and chief, but this is a free nation and he meets the criteria to run for the presidency of the United States. He should be allowed to go through the democratic process. The people should decide. I pray to God we make the right choice.
  • No one really knows and Obama won't provide any documentation to prove he is American. Kenya believes Obama was born there, as does his grandmother who claims she was at the hospital when he was born. His sister claims he was born in Hawaii but she keeps mentioning different hospitals there when asked.
  • American. If he werent he wouldnt be running for President.
  • It doesn't matter weather he has the document or not, or if he has the experience, or judgment, or even if he has the best interest at heart. The main stream media and other powerful groups in this country have decided who the next president will be, they will turn a blind eye to all these shortcomings. It is our responsibility to investigate and educate others. Remember, most people don't have time to read, the watch television instead. They (the media) have the power to "inform" or "misinform". By the way, the POLLS don't mean anything, (that's another way to "misinform" the general public). Their job is to "rally" or "weaken" the base. Read, be informed, investigate and make up your own mind by what you find, not by what others tell you, that's our most valuable tool.
  • Interested, thank you for the website, I had read that info before. Also see ties to Rayla Odinga. http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/4118
  • The same one as John McCain
  • he is hard to pin down isn't he? I mean what nationality is he really? Is he Christain or Muslim? Black, white, man, or woman who really knows?
  • http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=78931 It is still an issue being pursued by former PA. Deputy Attorney General Philip J. Berg. See the link.
  • If Obama is born in the U.S.A. territory, why NOT clearly show the facts, by Obama himself or his people? It is very easy, the tru is easy !!
  • Barack Obama is African-American. Multiracial and Biracial individuals in America with any amount of black in them are considered African-American. Frederick Douglass was Biracial, but was considered black. When white slave masters raped female black slaves, the offspring were considered black and were slaves as well. Any other biracially black individual in this country is considered black, yet when one of them happens to run for the presidency, America...well white America, suddenly acknowledges his white blood. Obama declared himself that he has an African-American and that's all there is to it.
  • According to American standards. If you have a drop of black blood then you are African-American. When white slave owners raped female black women, the offspring also became slaves and were considered black. Suddenly, a biracially black man is running for president and white America wants to acknowledge his white blood. Obama views himself as an African-American. His wife is black, his children are black...the man is black.
  • Who cares if he's black or white? HE'S A COMMUNIST!!!!!!! Race doesn't play any roll here. There are many prominent, decent blacks that I would vote for in a heart beat (by the way, Bill Ayers and his wife are white and I wouldn't even want them as neighbors). This guy goes beyond liberal, he's a Marxist and he wants to destroy the American way of life as we know it. He believes the constitution, our most valuable protection, does not talk about the redistribution of wealth, that it is a chart of "negative liberties." He says "separation of powers is an issue" (meaning a problem). He says it says what the federal or state government can't do to you, but it doesn't say what it must do on your behalf (meaning not only welfare, which may seem attractive to some people, but deciding for you what's best for your family for example the upbringing of your children. http://link.brightcove.com/services/player/bcpid1815820715?bctid=1822459319 Also listen as he calls himself a "law professor" when in reality he was a senior lecturer. He wants to make race and class an issue. Race, class welfare and to create division amongst the people has always been a key element in the communist hand book. I know first hand this is how it works, I was raised in a communist country. http://www.worldnetdaily.com/?pageId=79225

  • african american, born in hawaii ? lol
  • My answer is No. these are just 2 videos from youtube.com concerning Obamas place of birth. His family in Kenya say he was born there. There is documentation showing that as a child he was a citizan of his stepfather's country. Obama will not show a real birth certificate. Whenever asked questions Obama talks on and on, changes the subject and never answers the question. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-4FqVRWgrNw&feature=related Barack Obama - Born in Kenya II http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5TFgu1CXyVg&feature=related senator obama are you really a U.S. Citizen?
  • i heard alot of controversy regarding obamas religion,ethnicity & nationality. the only way to find out is to STUDY and search for the answers. so, instead of every1 yelling at eachother about the information they recieve(which, may i add, may be unreliable information or just an uneducated opinion) ***WIKIPEDIA-FAMILY OF BARACK OBAMA*** has info regarding his family tree along with his wifes. im not sure his religion. but please pay attention to THIS IMPORTANT advice...alot of us are here because its close to election time...its either mccain or obama. so naturally we want as much info about our upcoming president of the united states of america! the problem is----we are citizens of the UNITED states but we do not unite together. whatever happened to hospitality, love , & respect. just remember that if WE ALL UNITE TOGETHER AS A COUNTRY...A FAMILY...it doesnt matter who gets elected president.. WE can make the change! we are all one people! it doesnt matter if your from kenya, hawaii, antarctica or the hills of kentucky... we are all one in the same. lets focus on that. doesnt mean we cannot gather info on mccain or obama or show our interest in their history. just remember WE ARE A STRONG NATION AND STRONG PEOPLE. LETS JOIN TOGETHER!
  • he is an American, he is multi racial as many people are, does nationality make a person less qualified to run for president?
  • i answered this question already but i find it important enough 2 say again ***WIKIPEDIA-FAMILY OF BARACK OBAMA*** has family tree of obama and his wife. IF THATS YOUR ONLY INTEREST, THEN HAVE AT IT. but i must say, im so disgusted how we are name calling and yelling at eachother when what we really need to do is UNITE TOGETHER AS ONE hence the name UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! when is the last time you heard of a mugging or a murder or a sexual abuse?? now.... when was the last time YOU have helped your neighbor or fed a hungry child in your area or opened your wallet to help a family in need?? point is, when we do these acts of kindness continually....thats whan we will once again be the STRONGEST NATION IN THE WORLD! ONLY THEN can we stand tall together and say "WE made the change" so you want to know history on mccain and obama, i say good! but realize there are japanese, chinese, asain, african, cuban, mexican, white,etc.. in this country that are not going anywhere. WE ARE IN THIS TOGETHER!! SO IN CLOSING, I ENCOURAGE EVERYONE OF US TO EITHER RENT OR BUY THE MOVIE __PAY IT FOWARD__ AND LET THIS BE OUR MOTTO FOR OUR FUTURE AND SEE WHAT A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE WE CAN DO TOGETHER.
  • Kenya News headlines Today "Kenya Born" Barack Obama is Predident elect!
  • you are what your mother is therefor he is WHITE! not black
  • He IS Not TRUELY WHITE OR BLACK HE IS MIXED Just As A White Mixxing With a Black, mixed is just how it is. So I Really Dont no why all the blacks are so happy that he won for the black race when he's truly more white then black. He is only black from the outside And His childern are not true blacks background what make up a persons true color
  • Anonymous, I hate to break it to you, but YOU are the IGNORANT. I invite you to read Karl Marx, I was forced to as part of the school curriculum (remember, I grew up in communism). Liberals call themselves tolerant, but when someone else has a different point of vew they attack by calling those people IGNORANT, RACIST, BIGOTS, FACISTS, HATE MONGERS, RELIGIOUS FREEKS, ETC and it's ok. It seems like if you didn't vote for Obama, you were a RACIST. I didn't base my vote on race, I'm sorry that a lot of people did. It's too late now. Thank God we still live in a free nation and the people have spoken. We should support our new president and be united as Americans and ALWAYS be proud of our country, remember, others don't have such freedoms. Nonetheless, we should keep a watchful eye, remember, absolute power corrupts and President Elect Obama has very little opposition. I hope that I'm wrong, but if I'm not, he will most likely try to make fundamental changes to our Constitution. Two things to watch for: Freedom of the press, (repress talk radio and any opposition), our 2nd ammendmend (only the government will be allowed to own a gun) and the list goes on, but those 2 will be important) Now, let us rejoice and be happy for all of our blessings, we are a great nation, God bless America.
  • Sorry people - you need to get a clue, according to all nationalities, that you are what your mother is - he is extremely light - even though his dad was pitch black- his wife is black and his children are bi-racial - so we have a white president in a tanned skin - so GET OVER IT !
  • Does it really matter? He is bi-racial. His naionality is where he was born. He is an American. But I also have to agree with 4 out of 92. An ounce of Black makes you Black. You are no longer considered White. It doesn't matter what your mother is, the darker breed takes over. And as for the children, they are with no doubt African-American, darling. Just think, Tiger Woods cannot put all those races down and he is definatley not Asian, White or Indian. But it's political correct to say, Obama is bi-racial, then everyone has a part in it. I say be proud of who you are no matter what color, nationality, or sex .... You are just what God intended you to be BEUATIFUL!!!
  • In 1967 Barack Obama's mother, having gotten divorced from Barack Obama Sr, married Lolo Soetoro, a citizen of Indonesia. She and her son moved to Indonesia and she became an Indonesian citizen. In doing this, she gave up her U.S. citizenship because Indonesia did not at that time allow dual citizenship. Barack, being a minor and in the care and custody of his mother, also according to law became a citizen of Indonesia. Barack's school records and other official documents show him (Barry Soetoro as he was then known)as being a citizen of Indonesia. After Barack returned to Hawaii in 1971 he could have,through his guardians, his maternal grandparents,taken legal action to regain his U.S.citizenship. However there are no records that his grandparents ever did this or that he has ever on his own taken the necessary legal action to reclaim his U.S. citizenship. Barack Obama, regardless of the place of his birth, today remains a citizen of Indonesia. He cannot legally take the Oath of Office and serve as President of the United States. In fact, he was not legally elected as a U.S. senator and should be removed from office.
  • He is an Amerikenyan born in Hawaii. Beat that!!!! So he is eligible to calling himself an American and run for office. I am sure that issue was vetted before entering the race for the White House. Go HBObama !!!!!! The world needs you so we can start cleaning up the mess left by the current American leadership that has been throwing toys out of the pram.
  • Obama does not have to be an American to run for President. He does have to be to be sworn into office. His birth certificate may be forged and he may be Kenyan or Arab, but no one will stop him from being President. You should ask why.
  • African American
  • He's American, a US President has to be a US citizen.
  • boprn in kenya, lived in indonesa as a national and then moved to HI
  • USA like myself. Ethnicity and ancestry are not a persons nationality.
  • all will tell! all in time! personally i think he is not the right individual for president.like i said only time will tell and all facts will be brought out to light.hopefully it will not be to late for us all!in god we trust,not in man......
  • No one seems to know for sure he is a citizen of the world, I just hope it is this one.
  • American.
